This is what my other sister in law sent me this morning when she told me: He had gotten up yesterday morning and went to the cafe to have coffee. When he got up to leave, he wasn't walking steady and a guy asked him if he was all right. Chuck said yeah and the guy watched him leave. Chuck got in the wrong truck, so the guy went outside and drove Chuck home. Marilyn called 911, but they decided to just drive Chuck to the hospital. When they got there, they did a brain scan and there was a blood clot in the brain. Chuck's left arm had gone numb, his leg went numb, and he couldn't swallow. That hospital was going to fly him by helicopter, but it was too foggy, so they took him to the bigger hospital in Missoula by ambulance. The operation to remove the blood clot took about 4 hours. Marilyn said right away there was a big improvement. Feeling came back in the leg and arm and he could swallow and talk. They had told her before the operation that some people don't live thru the operation. They have him in intensive care now because they want to watch his blood pressure.
Thanks Everyone for your Prayers, Love and Support!!!!
